MUSE actually outsold Imagine Dragons and Kane Brown in pure album sales this past week in the U.S. according to Billboard/Nielsen Music.

#9 Simulation Theory 16-17k (#6 Debut Week 33k)
#12 Origins 12-13k (#2 Debut Week 61k)
#18 Experiment 9-10k (#1 Debut Week 105k)

Simulation Theory's second-week album sales were likely bolstered by sales generated by a concert ticket/album sale redemption offer with the band's upcoming U.S. 2019 tour.

Simulation Theory - Equivalent Album Units (Est.) Two Week Totals Cumulative To Date - Top 3 Markets

54k USA
52k UK
50k France (Certified Gold)

MUSE will be one of the select few Western artists to ever headline a concert at Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow when they play at the largest football stadium in Russia in June 2019.

MUSE have previously played gigs at Spartak Stadium (Otkritie Arena) and the Olympijskiy Stadium in Moscow.

Below is a list of artists who have played gigs at the Luzhniki national stadium of Russia which notably has also hosted the opening and closing ceremonies of the 1980 Summer Olympic Games; the 2008 UEFA Champions League final between Manchester United and Chelsea; and the 2018 FIFA World Cup Final between France and Croatia:

1989 Music Peace Festival (Bon Jovi, Ozzy Osbourne, Scorpions, Mötley Crüe, Cinderella, and Gorky Park are among the bands who took part in this two-day event in Moscow before the dissolution of the Soviet Union)

1993 Michael Jackson

1998 The Rolling Stones

2006 Madonna (38k attendance)

2007 Metallica

2010 U2 (60k attendance)

2012 Red Hot Chili Peppers

2018 Robbie Williams (Opening Ceremony of the FIFA World Cup)

2018 Imagine Dragons (50k attendance)

2019 MUSE

2019 Metallica

The only other football stadiums in Europe which have hosted a Summer Olympic Games, UEFA CL Final, and a FIFA World Cup Final and where MUSE have performed one or more headlining concerts are the Stadio Olimpico in Rome and Wembley [known as Empire Stadium during the 1948 Olympic Games] in London. The Stade de France in Saint-Denis (north of Paris) will be the fourth venue meeting the above cited criteria when it is scheduled to host the 2024 Summer Olympic Games.
